Fireboy DML is a beautiful musician and an amazing writer. This Ranked episode has arguably been the most difficult to do, but here are the top 5 songs from Fireboy’s Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps Album.
5. What If I Say
If you’re single, this song will make you want to get hitched ASAP. The delivery of this song is fantastic. Even the way the song starts with those chant-like sounds “Jo won ma lo’sanle, Insama du” makes it even much more enthralling and then all the rhymes. Have I mentioned that Fireboy has an amazing voice?
How does Fireboy manage to tell amazing stories with his music while still making them absolute ear candy? There’s something he’s not telling other musicians.
A king asking to be treated like a king? Sign me up. I love the way he just switches to Yoruba for the chorus. It gives the song some sense of extra depth.
I’m a sucker for songs with dominant and distinct trumpet sounds. But that’s not all there is to this song. You just want to dance when Vibration is playing, like “Is my name Faridah? Why do I want to dance so bad?”
Young John was wicked for this one
Whenever I listen to this song, I begin to feel Fireboy’s love in my soul and his touch on my body. Adedamola, please.
